Abstraction, 1920

Jay Van Everen

A kaleidoscope of colorful shapes, stacked and layered, creates a complex three-dimensional abstract landscape. The artist used a custom set of geometrically shaped wooden blocks, which he dipped in color and manipulated to compose his paintings. He was influenced by Synchromism, an art movement that literally means “with color;” its goal was to free color from its service to form and instead make it the element which creates form.
